Stand Up Comedy Show Tonight!

And every night!

Did you know that for 35 years, the Comic Strip Live! has been running live stand up comedy shows 7 nights a week? Well, they do. There is a reason more comedians call the Comic Strip home than any other venue in the city.

In the Tank with Jon Fisch and Ross Bennett

It’s another two-parter this go around.  The boys interviewed Ross Bennett and got answers about what comedy was like before clubs like ours and who helped him get over his fear of the stage.

Ross is a staple here at the World Famous Comic Strip Live and has been seen at the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival as well as on Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn.

Part One | Part Two

Keep up with Jon, Dan, and Shaki in various other places as well as here at Eighty-Second & 2nd.

Question of the Night 3.7.2010

It’s the Eighty-Second Academy Awards, & the 2nd time I’ve watched here in the lobby of the World Famous Comic Strip Live.

All of the comics were enthralled with the show, but the crowd couldn’t have been happier in the showroom tonight.  Dean Obeidallah, Tom Van Horn, Mike Destefano, jermaine Fowler, Mike Burton, DF Sweedler, Lee Camp, and Don Jamieson put on a great show.

And they were excited that Mo’nique, a fellow stand-up, won a statue.

Congratulations to all the winners tonight.

Check back next week for a brand new installment of Question of the Night.

And check the schedule for a night that you can stop by the Club.

If you were one of the lucky many who had to chance to come by The World Famous Comic Strip Live! this last week, you were treated to special unannounced performances, almost every night by the star of NBC’s 30 Rock, VH1’s Best Week Ever and a downright hilarious comedian all rolled into one, in Judah Friedlander.

Like many comedians in New York city (and beyond!) Judah has for years called the Comic Strip Live home and we love welcoming our alumni home. If you come by the club, you can stare in amazement at Judah’s headshot, currently hanging on the main wall of the club (which was taken when he was just 18!).
